Countdown to graduation: Matsui Rena’s last Music Station and Fukuyama Masaharu’s godly treatment

23 Aug

This week was Matsui Rena’s last Music Station appearance. Despite her being ranked amongst the top AKB48 girls over the past few years, Music Station did not grant her a solo stage(atrocity!!). Anyways, below is the translation of their talk with the MC.

Jurina: I received a mail from Rena at 4am in the morning, saying she’s announcing her graduation the next day. I was shocked and called her. 
Rena:I was informed that my announcement would be reported in the sports papers the next day, so i scrambled to contact her.
Tamori: What did you talk about?
Jurina: I was crying so much i can’t remember..
Rena: I was quite cool but Jurina was crying for 1 hour..anyways i told her we could always meet in private after graduation, or go for meals together.
Jurina: I can only remember this part.
Tamori: It’s tough to talk to a crying person for 1 hour?
Rena: If i had talked to her earlier, this wouldn’t have happened so i felt guilty and obliged to listen to her.

Towards the end of the show, Fukuyama Masaharu was asked for a comment but he showed some care for Rena, saying “Today’s Matsui san’s last appearance so please talk instead.”

Taken aback, Rena said “Thank you, sorry. I’ve received alot of opportunities to appear on Music Station and i’m thankful for the wonderful memories.”

His gentlemenly response has gotten a wave of good reviews on GirlsChannel.

[+1760] Both his face and heart is ikemen
[+1239] That’s kind. He doesn’t even know AKB that well..
[+1435] With this Matsui san will fall for him
[+1233] But this will embarrass the female announcer. According to the order, Matsui should be the last to talk.
[+610] Anyways, Matsui is graduating?

Well it’s hard not to fall for him after this. He just showed respect to an idol! And he’s a top level singer as well!

MV and jacket covers for SKE48 Matsui Rena’s last single “Mae no Meri”

17 Jul

The music video starts off with SKE48’s Matsui Rena making her graduation announcement on radio show All Night Nippon. Shet set off for Okinawa the very next day to film this music video, not knowing that her members had arrived earlier to prepare a surprise party for her. This music video relays the message of giving a push to someone who is chasing her dreams.

Apart from the usual team songs included in the single, Rena will also have a solo song titled “2588 days”. There is also a special documentary which include scenes of Rena’s audition up till now.
